Damn, I had no idea that was going on until so late...didn't realise Tarzan was going in the late 90's.

Edgar Rice Burroughs' “Tarzan and the Golden Lion” is now in the public domain in the United States. ... Public domain works are free for anyone to copy, excerpt, rework, and adapt without anyone's permission. A federal law enacted in 1998 extended the term of U.S. copyright protection to all works."

My greatest author discovery lately is Naomi Novik.

I read her "Spinning Silver," where the unearthly world of [its version of] Fae people - the Staryk kingdom - runs hauntingly alongside a real world from centuries past.

(fairy story with resonances with Rumplestiltskin)

Then I enjoyed her "Uprooted," and oh, man I love the two main characters. They make me happy.
The main conflict has some thoroughly exciting elements of "dealing with a creepy, inhuman entitity."

(This one has some links to Rapunzel stories, but more "there is a haunted forest: stay far away from it - it is horrible" stories and Polish & Russian fairy tales about witches.)

Now that I'm done with those, I have a hole in my heart. I'm mostly "bouncing around," flirting with reading five different books a little, but my heart isn't in it.
The books include:
"Gregor the Overlander" by Suzanne Collins
"The Dragonbone Chair" by Tad Williams
the famous one by Joseph Conrad
"The Honorary Constable" by Graham Greene

In non-fiction, I'm reading "The Art of Unix Programming."
(on-and-off, but I love it!)

I found out that Cameraman Jenn had never read Where the Red Fern Grows, so I bought her a copy. We'll see what she thinks.
